We are interested in using the SM200C in an embedded application (no operating system). Thus, we won’t be able to utilize the drivers/dlls. Where can I find the raw tcp/udp format for communicating with the SM200C at a packet level?

We do not publish this information. The communication protocol is proprietary and rather complex as compared to a typical SDR that you might be used to.
You will have to use the DLL to communicate with the device. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Ah well that’s a shame. I’m used to complex protocols, but if it’s proprietary then we’re stuck.
Please let me know if this changes. We are mostly interested in extracting IQ data (configuring the center frequency would go along with this too).

The protocol to simply configure a center frequency contains commands to directly set registers on about a dozen different chips, writes values to FIR filters to optimize IF flatness and image rejection at the frequency selected, and digital tuners to center the frequency of the I/Q data. The API handles all of this behind the scenes.rpettingill October 6, 2020 at 5:57 am
Like I said, API usage won’t be possible on an embedded device with no OS.
As a future feature request, maybe create an abstracted packet protocol that allows low level interfacing, and all your proprietary chip configurations can be handled internally? Just something to consider to reach more customers.
